Back cover copy

On July 23, 2011, Amy Winehouse's family, friends, and fans around the world mourned the tragedy that this remarkable, talented, and extraordinarily generous young woman was now gone.

In this intimate and tender account, her father and confidant, Mitch Winehouse, offers an inside view of Amy's life. Sifting fact from fiction, he details the events and the people that shaped her youth, sharing how she honed her distinctive sound, created her unforgettable look, and channeled her own life into hits such as "You Know I'm No Good," "Rehab," and "Back to Black." Mitch holds nothing back about Amy's addiction to drugs and alcohol, mixing the painful with the poignant as he describes the realities of her dependencies and the toll they took on the family and friends who refused to give up on her. He also exposes the years of behind-the-scenes drama that consumed his life and explains how, for those who knew Amy in her last months, the greatest tragedy of all was that she died just when she finally appeared to be conquering her demons.

Amy, My Daughter is an emotional journey into music, addiction, and the unbreakable bond between a daughter and her father.
